Outside World (mem Brain Idea/ Big Knife, lo-fi powerpop from Chicago, Night People Records… BANDCAMP) Crimson Wave (Baltimore pop… FACEBOOK) Heavy Friends (Baltimore Heavy pop.. No internet presence)  $5/ 10pm Presented by U+N Raven Sings the Blues; We were fans of Chicago’s undersung Brain Idea here, and their Kiwi-laden pop seemed a perfect fit with some of the actual So. Hemisphere crowd we’d been digging over the past couple of years. Alas the band dissolved but in their stead a new project under the name Outside World has sprung with Brain Idea’s Ben Scott at the helm. A softer, and more well rounded affair than Brain Idea, their new tape on the venerable Night People is a soft focus sugar rush of later period Kiwi influences but with a massive melodic touch up courtesy of the bass and background vocals from the band’s Hazel Rigby. The EP is full of stripped back candy nibs that deserve to be on repeat until the tape unspools in a fit of desperation; a blur of colors that collapses in dizzied bliss. Seriously interested to see where these three go from here but for now we’ll just have to love what they’ve put down on Seaside Nowhere. (RAVEN SINGS THE BLUES) Brooklyn Vegan; REVIEW HERE

 Doors at 9/ Show at 9:30 $5 at Holy Underground, 2021 Maryland Ave From Impose; Recently seeing the Chicago’s fuzz rock duo The Funs live reaffirmed two concepts: A) you should always go to that Monday show and B) when feedback is done correctly it can be a glorious thing. The Funs’ combination of deliberate, unbreakable drumming combined with melodious but sinister guitar work creates a sound that will surely have the masses citing early Sonic Youth. Except The Funs’ new s/t tape off of Manic Static provides a greater and more urgently engrossing tension than any Sonic Youth record I can recall.  (full review + streaming music; IMPOSE)

FRANKIE ROSE (ex Vivian Girls, Crystal Stilts - Slumberland Records)FACEBOOK DIVE (Captured Tracks)FACEBOOK  THE STERLING SISTERS (Cricket Cemetery)FACEBOOK Presented by Sonar and Unregistered Nurse $10.00 ALL AGES Get tix HERE As suggested by its sleek op-art sleeve and future-shocked title,  Interstellar, Rose’s next album is as welcome as departures get: an icy  blend of buffered beats, cascading chords and steely synths. Don’t  expect an electro album, however, more like what happens when an indie  rock vet spends an extended period of time alongside a proper producer –  Fischerspooner collaborator Le Chev. In other words, if Rose wanted  synth lines pulled from the same Kraut-y cosmos as Vangelis and Klaus  Schulze, a soundtrack-y slice of Enya or a bass line to sound like the  Cure’s Seventeen Seconds, it wasn’t a question of “How?” so much as  “When do you want to get started?” “It’s been exciting finding out what’s possible,” says Rose. “If I can make something sound huge or epic, why wouldn’t I?” Here’s the deal then: aside from a fall tour with Dirty Beaches, Rose  plans on putting 12-hour days in at the studio until her widescreen opus  is completed for an early 2012 release. “Often this album is the  scene in the film when the main character is reunited with his lost  love, or perhaps like a visit to another planet,“ explains Rose. “I want  every song to be like some kind of pop song cinematic adventure.”

GET TIX; HERE Royal Baths (Dark lo-fi garage/ psych, Kanine/ Woodsist… FACEBOOK) Other Colors ( Future folk, Genpop… FACEBOOK) Slowdance (Pretty pop music… FACEBOOK) $6/ 10pm all ages From Pitchfork;  The San Francisco garage-psych world isn’t a bastion of optimism, but  it’s a little too sunshiney for Royal Baths. Perhaps that’s why the duo  moved to Brooklyn ahead of the release of its second full-length, Better  Luck Next Life, an album gloomy almost to the point of self-parody.  It’s nine songs about black souls, black hearts, S&M, and dark lords  pounded out over Bo Diddley beats. They don’t skimp on the details,  either. For Royal Baths, there is no question: The world is a vampire. In the past, Royal Baths’ music has been tagged as psychedelic if only  because of their geographic proximity to groups like the Fresh &  Onlys, Thee Oh Sees, and Ty Segall. But this latest set of songs yields  little in the way of incense and peppermints. It’s a sludgy, turgid take  on the blues, swiping it’s chief inspiration from the Velvet  Underground but supplementing heavily with sounds from mid-1980s goth  rockers like the Gun Club and the Bad Seeds. Each song is a handful of  grotty chords strummed on a guitar with every string tuned to the same  note.
